      Rigid polyurethane foam (RPUF) is widely used for industrial purposes, but its applications are limited because it is very flammable and releases toxic gases while burning. Traditional flame retardants for RPUF release toxic and corrosive gases, while other flame retardants are water-soluble, which can reduce the flame retardancy. To overcome water solubility and the deterioration of the foam's mechanical properties when flame-retardant additives are incorporated, Deng-Hui Wu et al. synthesize a novel phosphoruse-nitrogen containing the single intumescent flame retardant, toluidine spirocyclic pentaerythritol bisphosphonate (TSPB). The results show that TSPB exhibits better compatibility with RPUF, and that TSPB-RPUF possesses outstanding water resistance. The cover shows an SEM image of RPUF. DOI: 10.1002/app.39581

      To improve the manufacture of flexible body armor against spike and knife threats in urban and military conflicts, Dariush Firouzi et al. investigate the ability of nylon coatings to increase the performance and penetration resistance of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fabric. Nylon-coated fabric samples demonstrate more puncture resistance compared to neat UHMWPE fabric, with no loss of flexibility and a reduced total thickness requirement, affording the same level of stab resistance. Results indicate that nylon-coated fabric could increase the maneuverability and mobility of security clothing, while serving as a cost effective, thin, and flexible alternative to comparable body armor systems.
